Basket Full of Flowers

Well we're on the home stretch to Spring and isn't that a nice thing to look forward to! I'm kicking that off with this adorable card for the new Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge starting today featuring the wonderful images from Dearie Dolls.

Here's the fun sketch for this week's challenge designed by our fabulously talented Sally!  I love the banner element here that makes such a fun embellishment to this layout.

This week we have a special treat for you.  Dearie Dolls digi stamps is our sponsor and these darling images are illustrated by Mary Ellen - super talented in drawing as well as writing poetry.  You'll love everything you see available on her blog, including her poetry, for your card making. The best part of all, her images are FREE!  Yep, you can't beat that!  So because of that, you all are winners this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday!  So pick an image from Dearie Dolls blog site and create a card for the challenge this week.  Be sure to leave a thankful comment for Mary Ellen and let her know you found her from her Sweet Sketch Wednesday sponsorship this week.

This sweet little girl, called Basketful of Flowers, just captured my heart.  She was brought to life with Copic markers and paired with papers from MME's Happier line. The butterflies adorning her here are a MS punch. I think this makes for a perfectly perky Spring card!

Head on over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday to see more of the fun and free images available at Dearie Dolls that the design team used.  You'll just love what you see there!

Thanks for stopping by!
